CoinMarketCap allegedly lists 3 fake SHIB contract addresses, Twitter firestorm ensues By Cointelegraph



A bit Twitter (NYSE:) drama ensued on Thursday, continuing well into Friday afternoon, when developers behind popular meme token (SHIB) issued a statement alleging that CoinMarketCap had listed three fake SHIB contract addresses belonging to the Binance Smart Chain (BNB), (SOL), and Luna (LUNA) blockchains. The staff at Shiba Inu claimed that the addresses were unsafe and that CoinMarketCap had refused to correct the alleged mistake. At the time of publication, the contract addresses are still viewable on CoinMarketCap.

Earlier in the day, CoinMarketCap issued a response claiming that the contract addresses listed on the page are wormhole addresses designed to facilitate cross-chain transactions. According to the popular crypto price-tracking site, the staff at Shiba Inu did not go through official channels to contact them and have reached out for greater clarification.
